Actually, Oracle STILL PROVIDES regular export. So if you want to compress an export, you can use the regular export.

If you have the space and time is an issue, then you have dp...

I don't think Oracle is an evil corporation that did this on purpose, I do think that oracle is a business and as such tries to make many any way it can.

Anyway, I hate working with compressed export files, so I am happy that it can no longer be done with dp ^_^
